It's like "one of the keychain is supposedly for ryoko. But i like them both. I wonder maybe i should take both of them? (And not giving any to ryoko)".

Sorry english is not my first languange :D

Then, you should explain it in the first place.
りょうこさんにはどっちがいいんだろう。両方持っていった方がいいのかな。

Oh, just for my learning reference, how do you write it in the "stingy" version you've mentioned before? :pompous:

Thanks in advance

The point is whether you say it directly to her or not.

Thank youuu :x3:

Oh one last thing,
If i add ~かな,
ryouhou motte itta hou ga ii ka na~
Does it mean :
"I wonder if it's okay to have them both for myself" ?

Or could i write : "ryouhou totta hou ga ii ka na~"?

Notice that's 方がいい. It's not "it's OK", but "it's better".
